AbstractHistoryArchive Description

There are legends about monsters buried under the sands of the Middle East in the ancient city of Nineveh. And Austen Layard dreams of unearthing the deadly truth. He rides into a war, stumbles barefoot across the searing desert and fights to protect his monsters from nomads who, at any moment, will be moving in for the kill. And suddenly Austen's dream is a nightmare. (Source: back cover)
